American Idol Stage


American Idol season 7 for 2008 hasn’t even begun and already there’s talk of spoilers. Each year we get weeks and weeks of hilarious auditions full of folks of like Sanjaya, but thankfully most of them don’t make it as far as he did. So after all the weeks of auditions have completed we see the top few dozen of singers move on to Hollywood. Personally, the whole process of whittling our way down to those heading to Hollywood is just fluff, and while it’s entertaining it’s not terribly important for the season. Considering all that it’s not too monumental to find out that the Top 50 singers of the upcoming season may have already been spoiled by a very thorough investigator, according to MTV News:

In posts on IdolForums.com, “JoesPlace” has listed the names, ages, home cities and MySpace pages of contestants fortunate enough to actually make it to Hollywood, where judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson will whittle the top 50 down to the top 24. And it appears that the list may be legit, based on information contained within the MySpace pages of the supposed “Idol” contenders.

The list is broken down into various segments: Those who’ve gone before the judges, those who’ve made it through Hollywood Week and those who’ve been cut — including, apparently, Fantasia Barrino’s brother, 24-year-old Ricco. The list also includes the names of the songs some contestants performed during various portions of the competition.

So the guy, “JoesPlace”, hunted around MySpace, talked to folks, and took in all the information he could find to come out with his Top 50 list. The idea here is interesting because the information has to be available due to the loose lips of those involved and even with it out there does it really change anything? Finding out who is going home at the end of the week is one thing, but finding out who we’ll be seeing more of in the top performances isn’t as crucial. Watch for FOX to sweep this one under the rug and just ignore it. I’m sure we’ll all still be able to enjoy the auditions.

    Yeah, that’s a strange practice they’re doing over there at American Idol. I think however that they’re probably responding to the need to step up the show. 7 Seasons and it’s hard to keep the t.v. viewers attention that long, even the American Idol faithful need better perfomances to meet their tastes anymore. Speaking of American Idol, did you read the new Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul yet? I’m almost finished with my copy. The stories are great, I especially enjoy hearing stories of how fans were effected by the artists in postive life changing ways. Anyhow, good post. Thanks for the FYI.
